December 30, 999 ME – A Walk in the Garden
Davianna rested a hand on her forehead, swaying with fatigue. “My mother is not very nice, either. If I am perfectly honest.”
Korah threw back his head and laughed. “Honesty? What a rare quality.” Quirking a gold and silver eyebrow, he asked with dark humor, “Shall I kill her for you?”
Thinking it was a joke, she played along, tapping the side of her cheek, looking up, considering. “Hmm. She was hateful to my father, and I doubt she even loves me.” Davianna threw up her hands in animated exasperation, his long cloak pooling at her elbows. “She abandoned me In Greece, all by myself, in a pilgrim camp, with no money. What kind of mother does that?”
“Oh, I know.” Korah grew very still. His eyes seemed to transform, the pupils elongated like those of a reptile. The serpent entered the garden and stalked Eve. “Shall I tell you, little girl? Would you like to know… how I became who I am?”
A powerful journey into the black heart of King Korah, what made him the villain that he became? What dark secrets does that past hold, and will they undermine everything that The Resistance is trying to do?
